and it is not a matter of me being ignorant or anything. I just don't understand it. but what I really don't get is how they can say they are persecuted and all this and all they want is peace, when it is their countries that are at war, and blowing each other up, ect...can someone explain this to me, how they say they are a peaceful people but filled with so much hate (it seems )

 I'm going to get bashed for this, again.

The religion isn't peaceful. Just like the old testament isn't peaceful. Its the followers who make it peaceful, even though they have no religious basis for being so. THe old testament is one of the most hatefilled and violent holy books around, right up there with the koran. But you dont' see Jews going around stoning their neighbor for working on SUnday.

The problem with islam, and the koran, is that the koran forbids revision, interpretation or updating. It is to be taking literally, a direct dictation from god to mohammed. As where the old testament is "divinely inspired" and open to interpretation.  Christianity has god knows how many versions. The old testament and its violent edicts are pretty much interpreted differently to help adjust with modern times. Sure there are few nut jobs who take it literal, but for the most part, they find a balance between more civilized and modern times, and the ancient text. The koran not allowing this keeps the religion in a perpetual state of religious "puberty". It can not evolve as other religions have. Just like the christians had the crusades and the dark ages, this is the muslim dark ages. And until there is a "koran 2.0",  which is forbidden, it will continue to linger there.

Islam is the religion, Muslims are the practicers. The people who stone women for not being covered are extremists. Most Muslims aren't like that. Do you have any questions about the actual religion?
